Olivia is still obsessed with making slime. Having recently discovered she can make it using PVA glue and liquid detergent only, she wants to do it all the time. Whilst it’s not as messy as her previous attempts, the problem of storing the slime still arises. So when we were asked if we wanted to use Gel-A-Peel to pretty up some tubs to keep her slime creations in we were definitely on board.
Olivia’s birthday sleepover provided us with the perfect opportunity as one of the nighttime activities was to make some slime each. After a pretty sleepless night, they all needed something to keep them occupied until their parents arrived the next morning. Cue the Gel-A-Peel and a major crafting session.
Gel-A-Peel Jelly Set & Homemade Slime.
Gel-A-Peel sent us a couple of tubs, some craft bits and a pack of Gel-A-Peel jelly tubes to help create some fun and blinged up tubs to store all this slime we no have around the house. The girls quickly got to work seeing what they could make with the various stickers and pompoms alongside the Gel-A-Peel.
My 9-year-old niece had the most fun with this and couldn’t wait for it to be ready so she could put her glittery slime in her tub. It is definitely age-appropriate for her and whilst Olivia’s friends agreed they still got stuck in having fun with the sets.
One of Olivia’s friends decided to use the Gel to stick the pompoms to the base and create a ‘snowman’ inside. Some sort of slime snowglobe type thing?!?!
Our only issue with the jelly ones, as we have pointed out before, is that they do take a really long time to set and because of this they weren’t ready to put on before everyone left. I also found it harder to clean up this time although this was possibly down to another set we were using at the same time. (This is why the tubs are shown with no Gel-A-Peel on!)
This was definitely a big hit and goes to show you can use the Gel-A-Peel for pretty much most types of arts and crafts, especially the slime craze that seems to be showing no sign of stopping anytime soon.
